Reviews

Reviewer: Harold of the Rocks - - February 28, 2012
Subject: For ALL of the pre-Stranger turning, check this FOB out
Couple of good versions of this show on Archive. This one sounds pretty good AND has all the pre-Stranger tuning that some folks like to edit out (why?) This was my 15th show and I was pretty amped to be there. At the show, waiting for them to start Stranger seemed to take forever! But for years afterwards, I loved listening to that tuning on tape (then CD, and now online).

As hot as the Stranger was, I felt like the rest of the 1st set just died. At the time, I was "chasing" certain songs, and none of the songs after Jed made my list (but Roses is always OK). Most were on my "please don't play" list. What can I say... I was young. Everything was played well, and that's all that matters.

After a pretty lame first set, I was really hoping that we'd get a Scarlet > Fire. The craziness before the Scarlet was... Crazy! Whose Harry? Scarlet > Fire is one (OK, 2) of those songs I was chasing. When it hit, I was ECSTATIC. It was a pretty good Scarlet but when it started going into Touch of Grey, I felt the wind leave my sails. I was bumming big time. I couldn't believe it. And then Looks Like Rain? In the 2nd set? Kick me harder!

Thank God for GDTRFB. Tom Thumb's was kinda cool too, mostly for the novelty of Phil singing. Black Pete > TS > Lovelight was pretty standard fare with a Brokedown encore not helping.

Overall, I remember being pretty disappointed with this show. Listening back to these juicy FOB recordings, they sound much better. I'm glad I have a chance to hear so many versions.

The recording gets 4 stars (4 and a half if I could). The show only gets 2 stars. I'm sure others will say it's the best show they've ever seen.
